When I ask my Adobe Reader 8 to display a photo, the image is sometimes presented as a 600% enlargement. Photo is either in .jpg or PDF format and is usually coming in as an -email attachment Can this unwanted display size be controlled by some kind of presetting in Adobe Reader or is it an unchangeable characteristic of the photo?
You can't open .jpg's in Reader. Just the PDF's.
Check preferences>Page Display>Magnification.
Of course. What I meant was some of my PDFs are conversions from
.jpgs received by email attachment. The photos I am working with are
processed through one of my Photoshop Elements programs. However,
I'll look at the Page Display>Magnification suggestion. Thanks.
when I scan a document and save as a PDF file it saves at 22mb how can I fix this? I have windows xp home and acrobat 7.1

To start with look at your scanning settings. Often the scanner tries
to hide vital settings like resolution, but you need to take control.
For example, a 600 dpi file is (very roughly) 16 times larger than a
150 dpi file, 64 times larger than a 75 dpi file. Colour files may be
24 times larger than black and white. And so forth.
Then look at the settings for PDF creation in whatever software you
use for this (it isn't Adobe Reader).
Aandi Inston, thank you for your reply. the scanner setting is at 300 DPI and I scan as a black and white document. I didn't have this problem until I updated to Adobe 8.1 which was awful so I uninstalled and put back adobe 7.09 and now every document I scan and save as a pdf is 22mb. I really don't know what to do next.
So you are scanning with Acrobat? In that case I recommend the Acrobat
Windows (or Acrobat Macintosh) forum, since you aren't using Adobe
Reader. Good luck,
Aandi, no. I am not scanning a document with Acrobat. I'll restate:
(1) I received an email.
(2) The email contained a photo attachment.
(3) The photo was in .jpg @ 158238 bytes 331x414 pixels
(4) I downloaded the .jpg to my hard drive (My Documents).
(5) I imported the .jpg photo to Photoshop Elements and adjusted the contrast, sharpness and hue.
(6) I saved the improved photo as a PDF file.
(7) When the Adobe Reader 8.0 opened the file it was displayed at 42.4% which filled the Reader window and cut off the bottom portion.
(8) I would prefer to see the photo, in this case, at 27,2% which allows a fully displayed image, requiring no movement of the up and down bar on the right.
Bob, the size you see doesn't depend (only) on the pixels. Sizes in
PDF files are in inches. You need to check and set the resolution,
which I would hope you can do in Photoshop Elements. If it's the same
as Photoshop, that allows you to set a size in inches directly.
The JPEG images that I receive via email (Qwest) are very big (Properties/Summary: width 2592, height 1728, vertical 200, horizontal 300). How do I change these? Joan
Joan, try the Photoshop forum.
